About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Edward Carpenter (29 August 1844 - 28 June 1929) was an English socialist poet, philosopher, anthologist, and early LGBT activist. A poet and writer, he was a close friend of Rabindranath Tagore, and a friend of Walt Whitman. He corresponded with many famous figures such as Annie Besant, Isadora Duncan, Havelock Ellis, Roger Fry, Mahatma Gandhi, James Keir Hardie, J. K. Kinney, Jack London, George Merrill, E D Morel, William Morris, E R Pease, John Ruskin, and Olive Schreiner. As a philosopher he is particularly known for his publication of Civilisation, Its Cause and Cure in which he proposes that civilisation is a form of disease that human societies pass through. An early advocate of sexual freedoms, he had an influence on both D. H. Lawrence and Aurobindo, and inspired E. M. Forster s novel Maurice Born in Hove in Sussex, Carpenter was educated at nearby Brighton College where his father was a governor. His brothers Charles, George and Alfred also went to school there. When he was ten, he displayed a flair for the piano. His academic ability appeared relatively late in his youth, but was sufficient enough to earn him a place at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. Whilst there he began to explore his feelings for men. One of the most notable examples of this is his close friendship with Edward Anthony Beck (later Master of Trinity Hall), which, according to Carpenter, had a touch of romance. Beck eventually ended their friendship, causing Carpenter great emotional heartache. Carpenter graduated as 10th Wrangler in 1868. After university he joined the Church of England as a curate, as a convention rather than out of deep Conviction. In 1871 he was invited to become tutor to the royal princes George Frederick (late King George V) and his elder brother, Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence, but declined the position. The job instead went to his lifelong friend and fellow Cambridge student John Neale Dalton. Carpenter continued to visit Dalton while he was tutor, and was presented with photographs of themselves by the princes. In the following years he experienced an increasing sense of dissatisfaction with his life in the church and university, and became weary of what he saw as the hypocrisy of Victorian society.[6] He found great solace in reading poetry, later remarking that his discovery of the work of Walt Whitman caused a profound change in him.

About this Item: Emereo Classics, Australia, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Finally available, a high quality book of the original classic edition of Gitanjali. This is a new and freshly published edition of this culturally important work by Rabindranath Tagore, which is now, at last, again available to you. Enjoy this classic work today. These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside Gitanjali: I so much admire the completeness of his life; when he was very young he wrote much of natural objects, he would sit all day in his garden; from his twenty-fifth year or so to his thirty-fifth perhaps, when he had a great sorrow, he wrote the most beautiful love poetry in our language; and then he said with deep emotion, words can never express what I owed at seventeen to his love poetry. .These verses will not lie in little well-printed books upon ladies tables, who turn the pages with indolent hands that they may sigh over a life without meaning, which is yet all they can know of life, or be carried by students at the university to be laid aside when the work of life begins, but, as the generations pass, travellers will hum them on the highway and men rowing upon the rivers. . A whole people, a whole civilization, immeasurably strange to us, seems to have been taken up into this imagination; and yet we are not moved because of its strangeness, but because we have met our own image, as though we had walked in Rossettis willow wood, or heard, perhaps for the first time in literature, our voice as in a dream.At another time, remembering how his life had once a different shape, he will say, Many an hour I have spent in the strife of the good and the evil, but now it is the pleasure of my playmate of the empty days to draw my heart on to him; and I know not why this sudden call to what useless inconsequence. .I sit on the grass and gaze upon the sky and dream of the sudden splendour of thy coming-all the lights ablaze, golden pennons flying over thy car, and they at the roadside standing agape, when they see thee come down from thy seat to raise me from the dust, and set at thy side this ragged beggar girl a-tremble with shame and pride, like a creeper in a summer breeze.

Carpenter graduated as 10th Wrangler in 1868.After university he joined the Church of England as a curate, as a convention rather than out of deep Conviction. In 1871 he was invited to become tutor to the royal princes George Frederick (late King George V) and his elder brother, Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence, but declined the position. The job instead went to his lifelong friend and fellow Cambridge student John Neale Dalton.Carpenter continued to visit Dalton while he was tutor, and was presented with photographs of themselves by the princes. In the following years he experienced an increasing sense of dissatisfaction with his life in the church and university, and became weary of what he saw as the hypocrisy of Victorian society. He found great solace in reading poetry, later remarking that his discovery of the work of Walt Whitman caused a profound change in him. Seller Inventory # AAU9781535485258

About this Item: Peacock/ Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd., 2011. Softcover. Condition: New. The initial fame of Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) who received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913 was due to Gitanjali which was published from London in 1912, although Tagore had published another Gitanjali in Bengali in 191. Deeply rooted in the Indian soil and steeped in the Upanishadic thoughts as the poems were, nevertheless the reception of the book in the West was simply overwhelming. Great poets like W.B. Yeats, Ezra Pound sang paean to it. Yeats was visibly excited over the arrival of a great poet, whom he hailed as ?greater than any of us?, while Pound too was moved by ?the saner stillness? of the poems as opposed to ?our clanguor of mechanisms? While eminent critics have put on record their genuine admiration of the translation through the past hundred years, devotion of the heart and simplicity of the song seem to be mutually complementary in the poems. The simplicity may have been informed by the very mood and tenor of most of the poems, which is one of utter and humble submission; a happy contentment of surrender and union that brings him to the realization that the loudness and flashiness of ?ornaments? are not only redundant but out of tune at such a moment. Gitanjali, with its ideas, images, its music of utterance, its divine joy, and also its occasional dark clouds of sorrow and anguish, seems to run through the interstices of Tagore?s stories, plays, songs, dance-drama, and even non-fictional prose till the end. After going through the volume every time the reader too would (like Wilfred Owen) perhaps feel like singing in unison with the poet ?what I have seen is unsurpassable? The new edition of Gitanjali: Song Offerings will offer a stimulating reading to the lovers of Tagore all over the world. A comprehensive Introduction has been given to provide deeper insights into the poet and his great work. Contents : Foreword?Mohit K. Ray; Introduction?Rama Kundu; Gitanjali: Song Offerings; Original Introduction to Gitanjali (1912)?W.B. Yeats; Sketch of Tagore?William Rothenstein Printed Pages: 48. Seller Inventory # 68992

About this Item: Monkfish Book Publishing Company, United States, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Tagore is unequivocal in his faith. He appreciates the intellectual triumphs of science, but he writes as a poet and philosopher. Man must always be a music-maker and dreamer of dreams; he must never lose, in his material quests, his longing for the touch of the divine. He traces the growth of the idea of God from primitive notions to universality. Today, as he says, all barriers are down and the the God of humanity has arrived at the gates of the ruined temple of the tribe. His book rings with joy and affirmation overstepping all limitations of race and creed. His estimates of western civilization are searching and some of them written in acid one reads much between the lines-but Tagore recognizes the true strength of the west and the faults of the east. The lectures are actually a superb and haunting criticism and evaluation of life from the viewpoint of an immemorial philosophy by a wise man. - Christian Century This is a book for everyone: a book whose human interest and pervading charm assure it a wide appeal and lasting value. It is not a philosophical work, as its author repeatedly warns us; in fact, its one semi-philosophical chapter (the first) may well be omitted. Its value is religious and poetical; like the essays of Emerson, it is primarily a document of the spiritual life. - Journal of Religion Rich in profound thought and poetic speech he has never written anything so penetrating and illumination on the nature of things Tagore has seen visions, and he can paint them for us with a compelling charm due to utter simplicity and fidelity. But he has not stopped there. His reason hs entered into truth by the doors which his intuition has opened A treasure-store of truth, beauty and wisdom. - New Chronicle Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was the youngest son of Debendranath Tagore, a leader of the Brahmo Samaj, which was a new religious sect in nineteenth-century Bengal and which attempted a revival of the ultimate monistic basis of Hinduism as laid down in the Upanishads. He was educated at home; and although at seventeen he was sent to England for formal schooling, he did not finish his studies there. In his mature years, in addition to his many-sided literary activities, he managed the family estates, a project which brought him into close touch with common humanity and increased his interest in social reforms. He also started an experimental school at Shantiniketan where he tried his Upanishadic ideals of education. From time to time he participated in the Indian nationalist movement, though in his own non-sentimental and visionary way; and Gandhi, the political father of modern India, was his devoted friend. Tagore was knighted by the ruling British Government in 1915, but within a few years he resigned the honour as a protest against British policies in India. Tagore had early success as a writer in his native Bengal. With his translations of some of his poems he became rapidly known in the West. In fact his fame attained a luminous height, taking him across continents on lecture tours and tours of friendship. For the world he became the voice of India s spiritual heritage; and for India, especially for Bengal, he became a great living institution.This autobiography/biography was written at the time of the award and later published in the book series Les Prix Nobel/Nobel Lectures.Philip Novak is the author of The World s Wisdom, a widely used anthology of the sacred texts of the world s religions and the companion reader to Huston Smith s The World s Religions.

Edward Carpenter (29 August 1844 - 28 June 1929) was an English socialist poet, philosopher, anthologist, and early LGBT activist. A poet and writer, he was a close friend of Rabindranath Tagore, and a friend of Walt Whitman.

As a philosopher he is particularly known for his publication of Civilisation, Its Cause and Cure in which he proposes that civilisation is a form of disease that human societies pass through. An early advocate of sexual freedoms, he had an influence on both D. H. Lawrence and Aurobindo, and inspired E. M.

About this Item: Scribner/Simon & Schuster, 1997. Softcover. Condition: New. While traveling through one of the poorest regions in India, W. B. Yeats was amazed to discover the women in the tea fields singing the songs and poems of Rabindranath Tagore. This striking scene led the great Irish poet to appreciate the depth of India`s far-reaching tradition of poetry and the fame of this one Indian poet. Tagore`s work is without equal and plays an eminent role in twentieth century Indian literature. The publication of the English edition of Gitanjali in 1911 earned Rabindranath Tagore the Nobel Prize in literature. A collection of over one hundred inspirational poems, Gitanjali covers the breadth of life`s experiences, from the quiet pleasure of observing children at play to a man`s struggle with his god. These are poems that transcend time and place. Printed Pages: 128. Seller Inventory # 109033

In fact his fame attained a luminous height, taking him across continents on lecture tours and tours of friendship. For the world he became the voice of India s spiritual heritage; and for India, especially for Bengal, he became a great living institution.This autobiography/biography was written at the time of the award and later published in the book series Les Prix Nobel/Nobel Lectures.Philip Novak is the author of The World s Wisdom, a widely used anthology of the sacred texts of the world s religions and the companion reader to Huston Smith s The World s Religions.

About this Item: Xexoxial Editions, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. First collection of poems by Payal Yagnik. Payal Yagnik s Creatures of Thirsty re-creates and permeates the spaces between our waking senses, our lived experiences, and the senses and experiences of the unconscious. In those mutable/mutating spaces percolates love and beauty and wonder and an aching, a thirst, that is hard to fathom. Creatures, human and animal and plant, untamed, unbound in time, rise up, palpable, interact, change, then sink back down, sift away as eyes-and tongues-open again. There are moments of intense revelation- I was not born to create, I was created to be born. My self is an anti-spiral, it is a constancy of an inert vision (17). There are moments of defiance: I am a retired precursor to all things transitory (71). There are moments of transcendence: It s beautiful, the way his poetry skips through the notes falling off this skin, like weightless snow crystals (15). This is a collection of poems you must read with all your senses, but it is also a collection you might read with your eyes closed. Your other senses, then, waking and dream, will transform your experience. -Crag Hill 5 questions for Payal What, if anything, inspires you to write poetry? The very fact that no one reads poetry, makes me feel sort of safe, that I have written all this circular nonsense and even if I solicit readers by coercion, such as parents, siblings, lovers, mates, children, random strangers, the probability that anyone will actually read it and the extended probability that they will make any sense of it whatsoever that somehow betters their lives, is so remote that that very inverse ratio of writing vs readership inspires me to keep writing more.

About this Item: BLOODAXE BOOKS LTD, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Poetry Book Society Recommended Translation. Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) is India s greatest modern poet and the most brilliant creative genius produced by the Indian Renaissance. As well as poetry, he wrote songs, stories and novels, plays, essays, memoirs and travelogues. He was both a restless innovator and a superb craftsman, and the Bengali language attained great beauty and power in his hands. He created his own genre of dance drama and is one of the most important visual artists of modern India. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. Tagore s poetry has an impressive wholeness: a magnificent loving warmth, a compassionate humanity, a delicate sensuousness, an intense sense of kinship with nature and a burning awareness of man s place in the universe. He moves with effortless ease from the literal to the symbolic, from the part of the whole, from a tiny detail to the vast cosmos. He is religious in the deepest sense, wavering between a faith that sustains the spirit in times of crisis - or fills it with energy and joy in times of happiness - and a profound questioning that can find no enduring answers. To him the earth is a vulnerable mother who clings to all her offspring, saying I won t let you go to the tiniest blade of grass that springs from her womb, but who is powerless to prevent the decay and death of her children. This is the revised and enlarged second edition of a substantial selection of Tagore s poems and songs translated with an illustrated introduction, notes and glossary by the bilingual writer Ketaki Kushari Dyson, who lives in Oxford. Poet, novelist, playwright, translator, linguist and critic, she is one of the outstanding Bengali writers of her generation, and has published more than thirty titles in her two languages, including acclaimed scholarly works on Tagore.
